Genre Guide: Co-Authored Books

from writania.comDefinition
I know this is not really a “genre.” But I think it’s a type of book that is different from other types, so I hope it might be useful to have a guide to what’s out there. For the purposes of this post, I am talking specifically about books written by two different authors, not books told in multiple voices by one writer. I am also not talking about books written in a traditionally single-perspective style, just by two people. This is for a few reasons: first, it narrows the playing field when it comes to putting these lists together. Second: These books just have a different feel to them. And third: co-authored books allow for a variety of interesting conversations about metafiction, authors as people (SHE is friends with HIM? Astonishing!), and what voice is.
